whether this is just a cover for the russian government or if this is their version of the nsa that's operating through this internet site. the fact is that whether or not he reveal secrets overtly, he can still reveal intelligence about our capabilities. if you remember the scene from the movie argo where they find the shredded documents and one by one those pieces of papers are literally useless but when you put it together, it is a lot of jerns. so a give like edward snowden could leach out a lot of intelligence just by in that field in russia. >> which is an interesting point wi . maybe they sell hats but it could be their version of the nsa. you don't always say you are what you are. that brings me to the point. we don't know what the job. is his attorney said they're with holding it for security reasons. how valuable, tim, do you think snowden is at this point as an intelligence asset for the russians? >> he is of great value. just his knowledge of how he got hired. the process of his hiring. the type of work he did. the personnel he worked. with all of those things, there's a
